My buddy Nathan has recommended this to me more than once, but I simply hadn’t come across it in my visits to NYC until now. A good recommendation it turned out to be. My pour didn’t look too amazing (a slightly hazy light, bright gold with a tiny head), but the nose showed lemongrass, orange, tangerine, hay, and some well-integrated spices. Bright is the word that most quickly came to mind. Taste is zingy, with a crisp hop bitterness. Unique--like a great tripel without the alcohol. I want to wake up on a crisp, clear sunny fall day and start drinking this.
Hazy golden body with a large, creamy, quite dense, white and long-lived head that sticks to the glass. Strong aroma of Belgian yeast and spices. In the back I get orange, lichee, overripe peach, vanilla and hints of banana. Strong flavour of Belgian yeast, black pepper and other spicy notes, orange and fruits. Traces of banana. Light to moderate sweet taste with a long-lasting light bitter finish. Mid-bodied, smooth mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. A very spicy and tasty ale.

Nice creamy mediumlasting head, slightly hazy. Aroma is slightly dry floral, weeds, hay, flowers, yeast, minerals, broth, grass, dough, spices, banana. Taste is slightly sour-ish dry floral, weeds, yeast, minerals, dough, light malts, flowers, hay, paper, bark, alcohol, spices. Medium bitterness, slightly watery and harsh mineraly mouthfeel. Not my cup of tea.
12 oz bottle with a July 2016 poured into a lager glass in Sept. 2016.
Look: pours light golden in color with a puffy, thick, white head. Very good retention. Sticky, soapy lace covers about 20% of the glass.
Aroma: Hop (Noble?) dominated. Some bready, fruity and floral aromas, A touvh of slightly funky aroma.
Flavor: Fruity sweetness balanced by peppery and herbal hops. Mild bitterness.
Feel: The body is medium-light with lively, crisp medium carbonation.
Overall: a solid but earthy/herbal Belgian pale ale. lownote (585) - Austin, Alabama, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Light yeast aroma. Clove like. Some citrus. Pours golden with a big head. Taste is a bit sweet, lots of spice flavor and a bit of citrus. Low carb body but light.

On tap @ Mudville 9. As the name suggests this is a golden colored one, soft blurry and a tiny quickly islandy shattered off-white head on the top. Smells nice. Kinda sweetish and mild yeasty. There’s some sweet tones of fruits without me being able to name them. The same goes for the taste really. It’s really soft on the bubbles and it has a mild oily texture in the mouth. Sweetish mild yeasty. There’s apricots and strawberries. Funky? Yeah, I do believe it is. Like it. 10.06.2015 diwmaron (3) - - JUN 6, 2016 does not count
Nice local beer. The taste of hops stays for awhile. No foam. Nice weat color. I recommend! Frank (4172) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2016
This is qn excellent hoppy Belgian. It’s just a touch sweet with a great melding of floral hops and fruity yeast. It’s fairly full bodied but still drinkable with a crisp pop of bitterness in the finish. This is one you could drink all day. NikkTwist (3200) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2016 Draft at The Irish Pol. Mostly clear gold pour with a slim tight white top. Belgium malts with American hops. Lots of lace. Catty aroma. Yeasty. Light amber fruit. Simply not working for me. UPDATE: Couple months later again at the Irish Pol. Rated poorly (2.7) before, bumping it up a bit because that malt feels fuller now and the body is creamy. The catty aroma has (mostly) disappeared. Better but still not a favorite for me. Could be a bad keg. westknife (107) - New York City, New York, USA - APR 7, 2016
Motherfuckers this is a well done beer. Belgiany tasting but not really from Belgium. Strong but not too alcoholy.
